    I've told myself I really need to go rerun those tracks, that was my first "ADV" ride I did back when I was on an F700GS with street tires and zero protection/farkles. A lot has changed since then!

    Now would be a good time to witness the sheer drop off depth of some of those concrete water crossings. It adds another dimension to the thought of crossing these when the water is high!

    If anyone knows someone who might be interested in a Triumph Tiger 800, I think Dwayne is going to sell his now that I've got the 1090. It's a 2016 XRT with around 35k miles. It will come with the full set of Givi Trekker Outback hard cases, barkbuster storm handguards, a Corbin comfort seat as well as the stock heated seats, and a Puig touring windscreen and the stock screen.

    Not sure what he's going to price it at yet, just throwing it out there in case someone knows anyone who may be interested.

    National Enduro Weekend at Matthews was great time. This is where i entered my first Enduro in 1986 on an IT200. Dropped 106 points and came home with a trophy in the C class. I test rode a few KTM's at the Demo ride Saturday and realized I probably don't need a new bike. Rode my KTM 250 on the Fun Ride
    and took pics on Sunday. Rained in the morning then was nice the rest of the day.

    Always love your photos. Now I guess we have something in common (sorta). My LAST (probably) official AMA race was at Matthews...

    I have sad news... One of the Southern Indiana Trials Team passed away last weekend. His name was Preston Pameijer. Although I'm not sure if he was on this forum he was an active rider. Trials, Adv on a GS Bmw, and woods riding a couple of Suzukis. Preston was only 30. He left a 2 year old daughter and a wife that is due with his newborn son in December.
    If any of you have been out to the farm for any of the events you have most likely met him.
    Preston was an young engineer that worked with my wife at Cook medical ironically developing life saving medical devices..
    We don't have many details other than he was at a rock climbing facility Saturday night and passed out and couldn't be revived.
    We are having a Celebration of Life here at the farm Friday if anyone is interested. And there is a Go Fund Me page set up for his wife and kids. Please PM me for any details.
